time from a foreign policy standpoint to have petraeus out. scandals that are taking key players out of afghanistan, syrian discussions. country that the president has a lot going on right now. >> we were joking coming in that you have to stare at your blackberry because every five minutes something new happens. the one familiar aspect of the david petraeus scandal is that he had an affair. everything else about this story is weird, in the washington post. >> i was going to see skyfall this weekend. i'm going to stay at home and read the sunday times. this is totally bizarre. there's so much that we don't know, this fbi investigator. not just four people. there's an fbi and cia, infa infatuated with jill kelley >> let's get this straight. this guy works at the fbi, becomes infatuated. she gets shirtless photos of him allegedly. she goes to him and says i'm getting these weird e-mails. >> he takes this matter into a federal investigation you have to wonder. an fbi investigation if not for this one agent's involvement and especially him going to congress as a whistle blower saying it w
about another foreign policy expert, in this case condoleezza rice, back in 2005. here is mccain on susan rice. take a listen. >> susan rice should have known better, and if she didn't know better, she's not qualified. she should have known better. i will do everything in my power to block her from being the united states secretary of state. >> okay. mortal sin, deal breaker, end of her career because john mccain said she had gotten the wrong brief and delivered the wrong brief. however, mccain had a very different reaction back in 2005 when condoleezza rice was nominated for secretary of state despite her direct involvement in the country's iraq policy, mccain trucked up opposition to her nomination to bitter innocence over losing an election. interesting. let's watch. >> i wonder why we're starting this new congress with a protracted debate about a foregone conclusion. i can only conclude we're doing this for no other reason than because of lingering bitterness at the outcome of the elections. >> talk about a self-indictment. mccain was asked about the contradiction this mo
because david petraeus was a key part of the president's foreign policy team. i'm not talking about guilt or innocence. i'm saying he's under a cloud. i have great admiration for david petraeus. i urged him to run for president. i worked with him. he's a tremendous patriot. but once he came under this scope of the investigation, they had to have -- they should have notified the president because david petraeus was involved in some of the most sensitive negotiations around the world. >> the "wall street journal" is reporting as you know that holder, the attorney general, knew about it in september. >> first of all, i think it should have been earlier than that because this investigation started a few months before that but assume it's september. at that stage, the attorney general should have immediately gone to the president. it's the president that runs foreign policy, not the attorney general. >> do you think politics was at play here, not wanting to do this before the election? >> that could have been. if that's the case it was a real dereliction of duty because the president's main jo

of course continuously focused on his foreign policy and national security agenda. he has great confidence in the acting cia director, confidence in his military and the second of defense and the defense department to carry out the missions that he's assigned to them. but he's got obviously a lot that he wants to get to work on and he's doing that this week. >> broadly, how does this affect the national security team? >> i think these are specific questions about specific individuals and posts. i can say now, even though you haven't asked, i have no announcemented to make with regards to personnel and no speculation to engage in. i can tell you that the president has not made a decision on personnel matters and you will not hear me discuss them until the president has made those decisions and has announced them. >> regarding two specific people you can't extrapolate but two of the president's top military brass either involved in an extramarital affair or inappropriate behavior. is the president worried about a culture, inappropriate culture in the military? >> i really would ask you to no
of national security, foreign policy. one question in particular got a rise out of him about his u.n. ambassador, susan rice. in his first full press conference since march, president obama was asked about the criticism of u.s. ambassador susan rice, his likely choice to replace hillary clinton as secretary of state. >> besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> reporter: rice has come under fire from some republicans for initially stating in television interviews that the september attack on an american consulate in libya appeared to be the result of a spontaneous demonstration. >> as i've said before, she made an appearance at the request of the white house, in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her. if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. >> reporter: and that's just what senator john mccain did a short time later. he has been one of rice's fiercest critics. >> first and foremost, the president of the united states, the commander in chief is the most responsible. and i hop
is also continuously focused on his foreign policy and national security agenda. he has great confidence in the acting cia director. he has confidence in his military and the secretary of defense and defense department to carry out the mission has easy signed to them. but he's got obviously a lot that he wants to get to work on, and he's doing that this week. >> how does this affect, though, his need to revamp the national security team. >> again, i think these are specific questions about specific individuals and posts. i can say now, even though you haven't asked, that i have no announcements to make with regards to personnel and no speculation to engage in. i can tell you that the president has not made a decisions on personnel matters and you will not hear me discuss them until the president has made those decisions and has announced them. >> jay, you're saying regarding two specific people you can't extrapolate. these are two military brass involved in extramarital affair or what might be called inappropriate behavior. is the president at all worried about an inappropriate culture i

, fbi agents removed items from broadwell's north carolina home. foreign policy expert mike o'hanlon has known petraeus and broadwell for years. >> she is a pretty great person. she is a person with amazing interests in our country's security. >> reporter: broadwell shown here if afghanistan embedded on an intelligence mission in 2010 had unprecedented access to petraeus as she researched her book, later calling petraeus her mentor. >> as a sort of academic mennor of mine, he is proud that i've been able to do this. >> reporter: while some former aides describe her as calculating, o'hanlon said her family life in north carolina with her husband scott and two children tell a different story. >> however big a mistake she's made and it is huge, this is a person who worked hard. worked hard to raise her kids. worked hard to do a good job with the book. >> reporter: the woman perhaps most deeply impacted by all of this is holly petraeus, the general's wife of more than 30 years. former aides say it would be an understatement to say that she is infuriated. nbc reached out to the petraeus, broa
at the moment at the top of your list. herman cain talking foreign policy. >> when they asked me who is the presses of ubekiki stanstan, i'm going to say i don't know, do you know? >> bekibeki stanstan? >> i think when he said that comedians around the country said that's our guy. that's the guy we want to have the nomination, and he sang the song "imagine there's no pizza." i mean, sometimes they do things intentionally funny and unintentionally funny. we appreciate both as comedians, and herman cain had a lot of potential to be a great candidate xheedically. >> rick peri, we can't forget his big oops. that also made your list. a painful time trying to remember the third of three federal agencies that he said he was going to cut as president, but let's watch this. >> it's three agencies of government when i get there that are gone. commerce, education, and the -- what's the third one there? let's see. >> there are five. >> oh, five. okay. commerce, education, and the, um, um -- >> e.p.a.? >> e.p.a. there you go. no, again, thanks. >> i think that was mitt romney, ron paul trying to
up to the very different foreign policy challenges and returning veterans challenges that we have today. >> ari, i'm going to pull a pivot. i don't want to talk about that. i want to talk about something else, which ties in both the petraeus story and veterans. >> well, we have a rule that if you want a pulitzer, you can completely ignore the host's questions. so you're fine today. >> fair enough. i forge on. the thing that struck me about the petraeus story is the damage that this puts on the troops and veterans. because, look, the military, for the last 10 or 15 years, has emphasized that it's a values-based organization, and the primary value that i hear talked about all the time, particularly in combat among what i call the working class of the military, the sergeants is and the lieutenants who do most of the heavy lifting in combat, the key value is doing the right thing when no one's looking. and there was nobody in the military, i think, who exemplified that more than david petraeus. he talked about it all the time. now to find out that he was not only not doing the right t
in recent foreign policy history is on tv defending david petraeus without actually addressing the real problems with david petraeus' record. those are the fact that he manipulated the white house into escalating afghanistan, he ran a campaign in iraq that was brutally savage, included arming, the worst of the worst. shiite death squads, sunni militiamen and go back to the training training that also had problems. to me, the questions of honor and integrity, i was raising those earlier. a number of other journalists covering petraeus were raising those concerns. you might not get that from someone at barbara starr at cnn who is essentially a spokesperson for the pentagon in many ways. so i think i just want to step back and have my piece because even the way the scandal is being covered is so different than how usual sex scandals are being covered where they hammer the guy. now everyone is saying oh, my god, he just went to the cia, how could he be, you know, he was susceptible to being seduced by this woman. give me a break. he has all his allies coming out to defend him where paula br
describe her as a hard nosed diplomat who shares many of president obama's view on foreign policy. as you may recall, after the consulate attack, ambassador rice hit the sunday talk shows and claimed that that assault started as a peaceful protest over a viral anti-muslim video. she said at the time that militants hijacked the protest and killed four americans, including the u.s. ambassador to libya chris stevens. we now know that story is not true. shannon bream is live in washington with more. shannon, could that initial response keep secretary rice from being nominated to head the state department? >> well, shep, there are some who think that the comments ambassador rice made in the days just after the deadly benghazi attacks will amount to nothing more than a few awkward questions in a senate confirmation hearing should she be nominated. others including republic senator bob corker say it wouldn't be that simple. >> i still have no understanding how anybody who was anywhere near the loop of information could possibly have come out five days later on five different broadcasts and said
's foreign policy team, maybe more than any other cia director in recent time. he was going around the world negotiating various understandings and agreements, i'm aware of that. and to have somewhere out there in such a sensitive position who the fbi thought perhaps could have been compromised or was under the scope of an fbi investigation who may or may not have been having an affair at the time, that had to have been brought to the president or certainly to the national security council. if not, the fbi was derelict in its duty. >> what do you think about what peter king had to say? do you think the president should have been told? should congress have known more? >> i think they should have been told. congress ultimately has oversight over what goes on in the intelligence community. but i just came from a campaign in the state of vermont. and the issue on people's minds is not david petraeus but it's the economy and the middle class. it's how we deal with deficit reduction and the fiscal cliff. i'm going back to washington tomorrow to make sure that we do not do deficit reduction on the
